Michael Holmes 30 Years of Testing!

30 years ago today, our Michael, fresh out of university, completed his first eye examination for a paying customer. Since then he has done about 75,000 eye examinations. He’s asked customers “is it better with 1 or 2” over a million times, but still seems to be working this out! Well done Michael, we appreciate your hard work and your good humour and hope you have another 30 years ahead. At least then you might finally work out if it is actually better with 1 or 2!

She’s toured with Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, kd lang, Michael Jackson and Sting to name just a few and here she is looking super cool (because she is actually super cool and really, really nice and fun too) in her new prescription sunglasses by SALT Optics.


New Collection from Martin & Martin

Since 2000, Martin & Martin has been exerting a formative influence over European eyewear design from its headquarters in beautiful Cologne.  German Designer, Martin Lehmann came to eyewear design after a varied background in literature, philosophy and economics.  The result…. Martin & Martin eyewear is adventurous and whimsical,  true to the spirit of innovative German design.
With all good design, form is never at the expense of function, Martin & Martin uses only best grade  Mazzucchelli acetates, combined with German titanium.
We are excited to introduce the latest collection of Martin & Martin at both stores.
